When Adam Woods takes a job in Venice as assistant to reclusive writer Gordon Crace, he does not expect that he will end up writing Crace's biography. Nor does he expect the uncanny similarity between himself and Crace's former tenant, who died in mysterious circumstances decades earlier. But when his desire to write the book of Crace's life becomes an obsession, taking him from the murky canals of Venice to the hallowed halls of a great English public school, we get the uncomfortable sense that Adam isn't all we think he is.

A mystery set in Venice. Liked the way it started out, and how the plot unravelled, however, mid-way through it fell flat for me.

The author is a huge fan of Patricia Highsmith, and I see that reflected in his writing style.
